My printer wil go offline when I have not used it for more than 10 minutes. I have it connected wirelessly to my router. Everytime I want to print I have to go to Wireless Setting on the touvch screen of the printer and do the Wireless Wizard set up. Then I have to reenter my password for the router...it's getting frustrating. How can I get it to stay online so that I can just print? Isn't that how it's supposed to work???

Thanks for using the HP Forums.
Can you try using a TCP/IP port?
Create a TCP IP port
1. Print a Configuration Page to get the printer's IPv4 address (you can also tap on the wireless icon on the Front panel of your Printer to get the IP address)
2. On your PC, go to Control Panel, from Devices and Printers, right click the printer and left click Printer Properties, select the Ports tab.
3. Click Add Port, select Standard TCP/IP Port, then select New Port and follow the wizard.
4. Type in the proper IP address for the printer.
This video resource will show you how to do it:
Create & Use TCP IP port
Note that you can ALWAYS revert back to the original port that the HP software installed by selecting the HP port under the Ports tab (in Printer Properties)
Let us know if that works
